Summer Days

Summer Days 2012
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Memorial Day week end spending time with your family’s. I had a wonderful time with family and working out in the yard. It was somewhat HOT but it did feel pretty good. I have not seen this shape of card around much but I received a card from a dear friend like this for my birthday and I had to make one so I email her and found out some information about the card so this is what I found out it is designed by Peerless and called Stubby Diamond card. I do have to tell you it is very important to have your measurements exacts because if you don’t it will not fold together right. I know because I had to redo it several times, but I got it.  The image I have here is from Nicecrane Designs, he has created a couple sets of these wonderful Little Magic Girls  and Little Magic Girls 2, if you would like to check them out. He also has some incredible collage sheets of The Wizard of Oz.
I did take several pictures of the finished card just incase in wanted to make it this way you can see how it looks done in different angles. The spellbinder I used is called lacey circles, Brilliance ink Victorian violet and sky blue. Diamond glaze, ribbon, Ice Stickles grape ice, mint ice and star dust. The little pearls and stuff I got in the bridle department at Hobby Lobby.

I do hope you enjoyed my card. If you have any questions please ask. I do know the directions are in centimeters here you can convert inches and centimeters because I find it hard to change it to inches so this should help you change it to inches. Thanks for stopping by.
